Pushing Rope

Definition - What does Pushing Rope mean?

"Pushing rope" is a slang term for penetration with a penis that is not erect. It's a metaphor that compares a soft penis to a piece of rope, which are equally difficult to insert and equally not likely to satisfy a partner.

Kinkly explains Pushing Rope

Although some approaches to sexuality actually encourage penetration with a soft penis, it is usually a frustrating experience to try to have penetrative sex with one. "Pushing rope" is a negative slang term to describe this situation.

More famously, the term "pushing rope" has been used in the adult animated show Archer, where Pam complains that Archer is "pushing rope" while they're having sex, also intimating the fact that while the sex has been amazing for him, it certainly is not for her.

  • I'm kind of a good girl - and I'm not. I'm a good girl because I really believe in love, integrity, and respect. I'm a bad girl because I like to tease. I know that I have sex appeal in my deck of cards. But I like to get people thinking. That's what the stories in my music do.
    - Katy Perry
